Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland has had its fair share of breakdowns over the years. This adventurous ride was launched in 1967. Since then, its been on and off. Months back, the ride was declared temporarily closed again.
In March, Disneyland revealed that the Pirates of the Caribbean ride would be on a holt again. Guests and fans didn’t take it in a good way. It was rescheduled to be open again in “Summer 2022”. As it appears, the ride is back on track now.
Nothing new was added as suspected. But a better sound structure can be experienced. Slight improvements were also made to cancel out any unwanted incidents.
Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow Still Intact
Well the main aspect of the ride, Captain Jack Sparrow, also had a lot going whilst the ride’s closure. He went through a topsy turvy trial against former lover. Some even suspected that its been closed to avoid particular controversies amid the trial.
When Disney didn’t seem onboard with Johnny Depp starring in the sixth part of Pirates of the Caribbean, the fans were uproarious. The franchise decided to leave out Johnny to avoid any controversies amid the lawsuit. When the ride got closed in March, people around the world expected the removal of Captain Jack Sparrow. However, now that the ride is up and running again, they feel quite relieved. Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow is still intact within the ride.
Well back in the glory days it used to be different. Before the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Johnny used to take the form of Jack Sparrow in public places. He even surprised some of the guests at Disneyland enjoying the infamous ride. Unfortunately, its all in the past.
Well upon its reopening on 1st July, the situations got a bit worse. The queues were certainly a bit out of control. Now its still unclear whether it was the passion of getting on the ride after a long time or poor management. That was not the only shocking situation the guests faced at Disneyland. The ride faced many holts during the day. It was temporarily closed and then reopened again and again. Even Fresh Baked (@FrshBakedDisney) tweeted regarding the upsetting holts. “Pirates just went down again. I think that\’s 4 times already today.”
The ride is opened for now but several inside sources still hint us towards more temporary closures. The exact reason is still unknown but most of them said there are some technical issues.
